How to use this image

Start an instance of neo4j

You can start a Neo4j container like this:

docker run \
    --publish=7474:7474 --publish=7687:7687 \
    --volume=$HOME/neo4j/data:/data \

which allows you to access neo4j through your browser at http://localhost:7474.

This binds two ports (7474 and 7687) for HTTP and Bolt access to the Neo4j API. A volume is bound to /data to allow the database to be persisted outside the container.

By default, this requires you to login with neo4j/neo4j and change the password. You can, for development purposes, disable authentication by passing --env=NEO4J_AUTH=none to docker run.

Note on version 2.3

Neo4j 3.0 introduced several major user-facing changes, primarily the new binary Bolt protocol. This is not available in 2.3 and as such, there is no need to expose the 7687 port. Due to changes made to the structure of configuration files, several environment variables used to configure the image has changed as well. Please see the 2.x specific section in the manual for further details.

You can start an instance of Neo4j 2.3 like this:

docker run \
    --publish=7474:7474 \
    --volume=$HOME/neo4j/data:/data \
